How to bring PH balance through nutrition.

In recent years, we’ve learned that an acidic body is a breeding ground for health problems. Acidity has been linked to gastrointestinal disturbances, obesity, inflammation, and premature aging. To prevent such health concerns, an alkalized body—or rather a pH-balanced body—is the ultimate goal, and some of the best alkaline foods can help.

The pH scale measures the acid-alkali ratio of your bodily fluids. It ranges from 0 to 14, with 7 being neutral. To have an alkaline body, you’ll need to have a blood pH close to 7.365, which is slightly alkaline.

Whether a food is acidic or alkalizing depends on the byproducts it leaves behind in the body. During digestion, the kidneys have a hard time getting rid of the acid wastes, so they seep out into body tissues, causing the body’s pH to become acidic. Acidic foods include dairy, eggs, fish, grains, and meat. Too much of these foods in the diet creates an acidic body, which is more susceptible to illness and disease.

By eating more foods that leave behind alkaline byproducts, you can reduce the body’s acid load, support your kidneys, and improve the pH of the body. Certain foods, even if they are slightly acidic like lemons, have an alkalizing effect on the body. An alkaline diet features an abundance of fresh fruits and vegetables, plant proteins, and alkaline water. Limit acidic foods and bring your body back into balance by including these 7 best alkaline foods in your diet.

AVOCADO

This fruit is an excellent source of potassium, copper, vitamins B, C, E, and K. Plus, avocadoes provide heart-healthy monounsaturated fats. A halved avocado also offers about 4.5 grams of dietary fiber, which reduces appetite by keeping you full longer.

BROCCOLI

This cruciferous vegetable is a great addition to your alkaline diet. Broccoli is a powerhouse of nutrients, including folate, manganese, potassium, phosphorus, selenium, vitamins A, B6, C, and K. Cooking food diminishes its alkalizing effects. So for optimal benefits, consume your veggies raw.

CELERY

A beneficial source of vitamin B6, vitamin C, folate and potassium, celery offers anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that promote healthy cardiovascular functioning and fight oxidative stress.  Celery’s high water content also helps prevent dehydration.

CUCUMBER

Made of 96 percent water, in addition to keeping you hydrated, cucumbers help flush toxins from the body. They also provide nourishing vitamins and minerals, like magnesium, potassium, and silicon, which are highly alkaline.

LEMON

They taste acidic, but lemons are alkaline once in the body. These tart citrus fruits help get the digestive system moving to remove toxins and promote nutrient-absorption. The vitamin C in lemons also offers immunity protection against illness.

PEPPERS

The bell pepper is a versatile veggie that provides a host of health benefits. Although they are a great source of vitamin C, vitamin A, folate, and dietary fiber, bell peppers are perhaps most beneficial due to their antioxidant profile. For example, carotenids are one type of antioxidant abundant in bell peppers that protects against cancer.

SPINACH

This leafy green vegetable offers a great nutrient profile. Spinach contains vitamins A, B2, C and K as well as manganese, folate, magnesium, and iron. When it comes to an alkaline diet, spinach gets a boost from chlorophyll, which is extremely beneficial for improving the acid-alkali ratio.

HCG

HCG, Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, is a pro-hormone that is naturally produced in the placenta during pregnancy. Controversies surrounding the efficacy of HCG Injections for weight loss still exist. Critics claim the caloric restrictions are responsible for weight loss results, not the hormone itself. However, with properly administered doses and monitoring of HCG, it has proven to help the body make more hormones where there are deficiencies and imbalances most are unaware of. Whether it is thyroid, menopause or andropause, the HCG hormone offers help in balancing out your body’s hormone levels.

 

There are many HCG related products on the market all claiming to work, but only injections have been shown to raise the blood levels of HCG, making it the only effective way of taking the hormone. Any drops, pills or sprays are likely to be dissolved before ever reaching the blood, rendering them ineffective. Injections should only be taken with a prescription and under medical supervision. In conjunction with a low calorie diet, you can lose up to one pound per day on an HCG diet plan.

How exactly do HCG Injections work? They change how you lose weight, faster and more effectively. The presence of HCG in the bloodstream helps curb the appetite. Generally when people lose weight a lot of muscle is lost as well which in turn slows down metabolism. By raising hormone levels in the body, such as testosterone, HCG creates an anabolic state which contributes to lean muscle gain. With HCG injections, there is more of a pure fat loss which results in the desired shrinking in inches and clothing size. The lean muscle gains allows for stronger metabolism and helps people maintain their weight loss long after the diet is successfully completed. Other benefits of HCG injections include increased libido and fertility as well.

Unfortunately, there is still no magic pill or injection that can alone produce the weight loss results you desire. Diet, exercise and commitment are always key to help you achieve the optimal results.

PURPOSFUL SUFFERING

PURPOSFUL SUFFERING
FROM JOE de SENA
OWNER SPARTAN RACE INC

If you look at history, what separates the successful from unsuccessful is clear. Winners rise to the top because they have NO QUIT.

There are examples in every business and every industry.

Stephen King’s “Carrie” was rejected by 30 publishers.

Joe Montana was once Notre Dame’s 7th-string quarterback.

Oprah Winfrey was fired from a co-anchor position on a local evening news station.

If those individuals decided to throw in the towel, their lives would be completely different.

Psychologist Sherrie Campbell says: “Success is all about risk. Each time you put yourself and your idea out into the world you risk rejection and criticism, so do not be shocked or dismayed when it happens. Success is about getting knocked down, learning resilience, getting back up and risking again,”

So, what does it take to push through even as the rejections pile on?

Enthusiasm.

You have to be an energy giver, not an energy taker. People want to be around others who are positive and inspiring.

Enthusiasm and a never-quit attitude almost guarantees success.

It can’t be taught. You either have it or you don’t
